AW12 PREVIEW WOMENS
With autumn on the horizon, our attentions turn to new season dressing. Catch a glimpse of the future with our Autumn/Winter ’12 preview, it’s sure to spur sartorial longings for all things new. From pieces which transform your wardrobe both now and later, autumn can’t come quick enough.
Approach knitwear with a new-found zest.
Just around the corner and beckoning us with its butter-soft leathers, slouchy knits and luxurious silks, autumn’s story is in its first chapter.
Taking in the transitional pieces which slot effortlessly into your wardrobe right now; cue feather-light silk shirts and dresses splashed with abstract prints, to tailoring which takes a shapely stance, these early flashes demonstrate an aptitude for between-seasons dressing.
Looking beyond the here and now, things have an artistic touch. A creative blend of colour, print and texture, these pieces are best worn lightly layered, so fine-tune your partnering skills. Whether it be a preppy collar sitting over a pretty knit, or an oversized blouse peeking out beneath a sloppy Joe jumper, be sure your layers are on display.
Colour will romance too; from soft and muted shades on fine, lightweight knits, to statement colours on oversized leathers, and tailored trousers which are awash with colour, this is the season to say goodbye to black.
Introduce yourself to a rich and inviting colour palette spanning earthy, woodland shades, soft and unassuming rose pinks and heathery greys to dark and mysterious inky blues.
And, of course, take these elements and apply them to shape. With oversized, voluminous jackets and tops sitting aloft tapered bottoms, to louche and luxurious wide leg pants – it’s all about the silhouette.
Looks for today and tomorrow, leaf through and enjoy the story.
